One foot
In front
Of the other.
Onwards and upwards
Eyes front.

Quiet tears
Pool within
Heels digging in
I will not cry
I cannot cry
I shall not cry
**** knows why

I am swaying on
The fringe
Between
Falling and fallen

crawling

Slowly slowly
Duck n weave
Heart on sleeve

Hiding behind corners
Eyes down.
Tight frown
Eyebrow furrow
I am the badger
Burrowed
The ostrich
With his head
Planted
Quietly
In the ground.

I am sound
And sounding
Calling
Crying
Trying
So very hard
To just
Keep on Keeping on.
